how to increase your benefit from the class was created by moosaa.richardson
as-salāmu 'alaykum

with the class approaching, in shaa' Allaah, I thought i would post some advice for the more serious students, to help them get the most out of it.

while the class is for everyone, even those with little or no commitment to studying, you can get more than most people out of it by following these guidelines in shaa' Allaah:

1) ask Allaah for beneficial knowledge now and every day, for yourself, your teacher, and everyone involved in the course.

2) try to memorize the aayaat and aḥādīth before each class, or at least after the class and before the next one

3) pre-reading: read ahead before the class

4) after class reading: follow up your class with a re-reading of the selection

5) research things that interest you that are related to the material you are studying, and post what you find on the forum to benefit others.

6) register and take the quizzes that come with the course

7) try to understand the arabic structure and vocabulary of the things you memorize.

8) join up with other more serious students (of the same gender) in person and on-line, to cooperate on any of the above, for an hour a week

and Allaah knows best.

Assalamu alaykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh,

For the students who don't speak arabic, do you suggest we memorize the arabic text of the ayaah/ḥadīth or the english?

Also, regarding the weak aḥadīth used in the book, should we memorize them too?

JazakaAllahu Khair.

Maashaa Allaah some nice reminders above.

Until more qualified advice comes along here are a couple of suggestions:

For memorising the ayaat you could use some Qur~aanic software which allows you to select an aayah or group of ayaat and listen to them repeatedly. I think the Qur~aan Complex website allows you to do something similar.
I don't know if there are any audios available of the text of Kitaabut-Tawḥīd, but that could be used if found - or alternatively, we have all the audios of the classes so far, alhamdulillaah so you could listen through them.

Ukhti Kareema: If you are able to memorise the texts in Arabic then inshaa Allaah it would have the following benefits:

you would be preserving the Speech of Allaah as it was revealed
you would be preserving the aḥādīth as they were spoken
you would be familiarising yourself with pronouncing Arabic words and memorising them

Then if you were to learn the English meaning as well then inshaa Allaah you will start to pick up the meanings of certain words as well. If you have time you could look up some of the words you don't know and see how they fit into the text and which meaning has been chosen for the translation.

Inshaa Allaah this will be more beneficial than just learning the translation.

And Allaah knows best


I've compiled a list of ayaat we have covered so far for those who wish to use software which allows selection and repetition of aayaat. May Allaah enable us to use this break to catch up where we have been lagging behind and increase us in our understanding and practice of tawḥīd, aameen.

The first number is the the number of the soorah in the Qur~aan and the second number after the colon represents the number of the aayah.
